So the state of Maryland is going to spend 3.7 million tax dollars to built a roundabout at the intersection.
A roundabout is defined as "a type of looping junction in which road traffic travels in one direction around a central island and priority is given to the circulating flow. Signs usually direct traffic entering the circle to slow and to give way to traffic already on it."
It's very simple. You approach the circle, and you don't do a doggone thing until there is a break in the traffic, and then you get in the flow, and get off where you need to.
The state says that they have been putting in traffic roundabouts since 1994 with "zero intersection-related fatalities" since.

The work on the roads will take until late next summer, but motorists who dislike roundabouts are advised to start panicking about using the circle now.
